How the Healthy City Partnership
The Healthy City programme is part of the wider Brighton and Hove Strategic Partnership which works to improve the city in line with the
Sustainable Community Strategy.
The programme is managed by a Healthy City Partnership board that meets in public and is chaired by Dr Tom Scanlon, Director of Public Health for Brighton and Hove. The Board includes members from a wide range of organisations across the city including public, private, voluntary and community organisations.
The Partnership Board has established a small Steering Group to agree the detailed Healthy City strategy and oversee three working groups (one for each Phase 5 priority).
These three working groups are:
- Healthy workplaces
(focusing on issues relating to employment, and improving health and well being of the workforce)
- Active living
(focusing on active living, mental health and well-being)
- Healthy urban environment and design
(focusing on urban planning and transport, including workplace travel plans and encouraging walking and cycling)
